Great product! Writes DVDs Quickly. I was hoping for a USB powered, but it requires an External Power source.

Rated 5 out of 5�by DripPan Great Product!
I ordered a laptop without a CD writer/reader because it is seldom used and another item to get broken on the laptop. I do take it along sometimes if I think I'll need it but most of the time I leave it at home and use it when needed.
My personal thoughts on the matter is CD writer/readers were very important for backups and such but with USB drive with much more storage space, the CD writer/reader is seldom needed.

Rated 5 out of 5�by tgrue2 Great Heavy Duty USB Reader/Writer
Have had various CD/DVD writers but this is great heavy duty one that was priced right. Have used it now for a few months with no issues. Highly recommend this item.

Rated 5 out of 5�by maiznblueguy Great features for the price
This drive has a great package of features for the price. I use it for viewing instructional DVDs and data storage. Purchased it because my new laptop didn't have a DVD drive (becoming very common).
The only issue had was getting the driver loaded. Windows 8.1 is very deficient when it comes to drivers and add ons. While the previous versions of Windows were pretty much plug and play for adding accessories, 8.1 expects you to buy all addins, drivers, etc.
If your LG drive doesn't function right away, try it on another computer, chances are it's a Windows issue not the drive!
